Regardless of the type of borrower you are, before you decide on which lender you choose to fund your home loan, it is equally important to ensure that you choose the features that will suit your budget and lifestyle. Accomplish Finance will listen to your choice of loan features when preparing your loan proposal. Listed are some features that you may consider when choosing your loan:
Depending on the amount that you borrow some lenders offer packaged loans with an assortment of features and benefits for an annual fee. The benefits and fees vary from lender to lender, the savings may include; no loan establishment fee, discounted interest rates; both variable and fixed, nil monthly account fee on your loan account and everyday saving accounts, discounts on Home and Contents Insurance to no annual fee on Gold Visa/MasterCard facilities. Fees, charges and conditions may apply to approved applicants.
Is a feature to allow you to redraw any excess available funds you have deposited to your loan account over and above your regular repayments. This feature is offered by selected lender products. Depending on the product chosen you may be limited to the minimum amount and number of free redraws allowed each month. You may benefit by depositing extra funds into your loan account. For example; if you budget for your rates say of $1200 per annum and deposited an extra $100 per month into your loan to save for your rate account, this may reduce the amount of interest payable as the interest is generally calculated on your loan balance. You may then redraw those extra funds when you need to pay your rates or for those unexpected expenses provided the funds are still available. Generally the redraw facility is unavailable for fixed rate loans. Fees, charges and conditions may apply to approve applicants.
Fixed rate feature allows you to lock in a rate generally for one to five years to protect you against possible interest rate rises.

You may consider a combination of a variable & fixed rate loan. Fees, charges and conditions may apply to approved applicants.
